Three sides to skiing

Three distinct sides make up the ski area at Kvitfjell: the newly expanded Varden area, Kvitfjell Vest (west) and the original ski area of Kvitfjell itself – home to the Olympic downhill. The modern lift system allows you to easily access the full ski arrea and terrain which is suitable to all skill levels. 

Olympic quality

Kvitfjell skiing resort was originally developed for the downhill alpine events at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics. Now, it's a regular venue on the Alpine Skiing World Cup circuit. The Olympiabakken downhill course, which was designed by Bergard Russi, is highly regarded among the world's best skiers. The consistent snowfall, long season and combination of world-class slopes make it a ski enthusiast's dream. 

Family friendly 

At Kvitfjell you have great kids areas with wide slopes and easy lifts. Try the green terrain park especially designed for small park enthusiasts or try the children's own world cup slope with a real start port, games and timing! When the children want bigger challenges, they can try out Kvitfjell's terrain park with jumps and rails in all shapes, sizes and degrees of difficulty.
